Who IS THE BIGDUMBHICK?
That's me, Jeff Wall. I'm the Bigdumbhick. I'm am acoustic singer/songwriter/storyteller living in Winston-Salem, NC.
"But why Bigdumbhick?"
Because if you do a Google search on Jeff Wall, odds are you will find a Canadian. Either the esteemed photographer Jeff Wall, or the equally esteemed British Columbia based Singer/Songwriter Jeff Wall. Not the bigass, hillbilly, Singer/Songwriter/Storyteller Jeff Wall from North Carolina. But if you do a search for Bigdumbhick, you will find me here, because there is only one Bigdumbhick.
"Ok, But why Bigdumbhick?"
I'm big. My wife says I'm dumb, My kids think I'm a hick. I'm 6'7" and somewhere around 340lbs. I take up a lot of space. I have a Southern accent. When you are this big, and you talk like this, and look like this, people automatically make assumptions, and i like to have fun with that.
"What kind of music do you play?"
I never know how to answer this. I am a solo acoustic musician who has tested positive for all the different Roots Music styles: Folk, Country, Bluegrass, Rock, Blues, and even some Punk and Reggae. Does that make me an Americana Artist?
I primarily play original music, I tell stories and I interact A LOT with the audience...they are part of the show. I can play hilarious "R-Rated" shows, I can play Family Friendly shows that you can bring your ultra-devout Grandmother to. I occasionally even play well paying gigs where I'm just background music, playing covers for people while they dining and drink. I try to gear each performance to the audience I am playing to. As a professional it is my goal to entertain without making anyone feel uncomfortable.
